The Jewel Box Distylium (Distylium 'Jewel Box') is a compact and versatile evergreen shrub prized for its dense, fine-textured foliage and adaptability. Its low-maintenance nature makes it a popular choice for landscape design, foundation plantings, and hedges.
Jewel Box Distylium is a small, slow-growing evergreen shrub, typically reaching 2-3 feet in height and spreading 3-4 feet wide. It thrives in USDA hardiness zones 7-9, making it suitable for a variety of climates. This distylium is adaptable to various soil types and pH levels, but it prefers well-draining, moist soil and full sun to partial shade.
One of the key features of the Jewel Box Distylium is its resistance to common plant diseases and pests. This hardy shrub is a great alternative to boxwoods, which are often plagued by blight and other issues.
The foliage of Jewel Box Distylium is one of its standout features. Its small, glossy, dark green leaves are fine-textured and densely packed on the branches, creating a lush and tidy appearance. This attractive foliage makes it an ideal choice for creating neat, low hedges, border plantings, or as an accent plant in the landscape.
In late winter to early spring, Jewel Box Distylium produces tiny, inconspicuous red flowers along its stems. Although the flowers are not particularly showy, they add a subtle touch of color and interest to the shrub. These delicate blooms are also a valuable early-season nectar source for pollinators such as bees.
